We challenge you not to gag when you hear about the Pick Up Girls smartwatch

The Pick Up Girls SmartWatch
Are you ready for a challenge? Here we go: Try not to gag as you learn more about the latest smartwatch project to hit crowd-funding site Indiegogo. It’s called the Pick Up Girls smartwatch, and the name gives its primary function away pretty early on, because it’s supposedly made to help guys get better at meeting and seducing girls.

It does this, apparently, by playing subliminal messages over music streamed from the device, and by encouraging the use of three 15-minute hypnosis lessons to increase confidence, and get rid of shyness. By doing this, the watch will help men learn dating and social skills, understand how to impress girls, make eye-contact, tell great jokes, and obviously, learn to be a better lover.

Pick Up Girls Watch FacesOther features useful for picking up girls include watch face wallpaper of kittens and flowers, which when shown off, are great tools for starting conversations. The Pick Up Girls smartwatch is described as the wearable that trains your brain while you listen to music, so you can, “meet and sweet talk more girls, and have more sex.”

Outside of this, if you pop in a SIM card the watch also becomes a phone, there’s a camera above the 1.56-inch, 240 x 240 pixel touchscreen, plus the battery will last about a week. It’ll connect to Android or iOS phones, deliver notifications, monitor fitness, and has 32GB of internal storage memory.

It costs $200 and comes with a pair of special headphones that can reproduce the low-frequency subliminal audio, but need to be physically connected to the watch using a cable. A Bluetooth headset is included in the next level option, which costs $235. Somewhat bizarrely, each watch comes with a lucky coin with the words “I am lucky with the ladies” on one side, and “I am confident, I am cool” on the other. That should help.

Is it real?

Congratulations, you made it this far without gagging, but did you make it this far without laughing? There is, of course, almost zero chance this is a genuine product. The campaign has received no contributions at all (and if it were possible, there are idiots out there who would go crazy for this type of product), while the company and the man behind it, Amazing Results and someone called Art Glass, don’t seem to really exist.

How do we know for sure the Pick Up Girls smartwatch is all a big, stupid, not-very-funny joke? Because no-one, man nor woman, has ever impressed a member of the opposite sex with any kind of wearable tech, and never will either. If you’re out there, Art Glass, then please do get in touch to prove us wrong.

This $4,000 titanium beauty is the ultimate square G-Shock
The G-Shock MRG-B5000B.

Do you want the very best Casio offers in manufacturing, design, and technology from your new G-Shock, all wrapped up in that highly recognizable square case? In other words, the ultimate version of a truly classic G-Shock watch? If so, the new MRG-B5000B is exactly the model you will want, provided cost is no object. We’ve been wearing it.
What makes MR-G so special?
Although Casio is best known for tough watches that won’t break the bank, Casio also has decades of watchmaking experience, and it showcases its talents most effectively in its highly exclusive MR-G family of watches. These models, its most luxurious, are assembled by hand on Casio’s Premium Production Line located in the Yamagata factory in Japan, where only the company’s most experienced, specially certified technicians work on the top MT-G and MR-G models.

The square G-Shock is one of the most popular models, having been around since the G-Shock brand first started in the early 1980s, and bringing it to the luxury MR-G range is going to see a lot of people reaching for their wallets. What makes it so special? It’s the first time the classic, beloved square G-Shock has been given the MR-G treatment, with most other MR-G models over the past few years featuring an analog dial. There's a huge section of an already large fan base waiting for this.

Razer Anzu smart glasses deal knocks $140 off the price tag
The Razer Anzu smart glasses placed on top of an open book.

While smartwatch deals have slowly claimed their place in the mainstream, smart glasses haven't turned out to be as popular. Gaming-focused brand Razer, however, is trying to renew interest in smart glasses with the Razer Anzu, which you can currently purchase from Best Buy at $140 off. If you'd like to give them a try, they're available for just $60, less than half their original price of $200.

There have been failures like the Google Glass and Snap Spectacles, and hopeful attempts like Oppo's Air Glass and Apple's secretive project, but the Razer Anzu smart glasses take a different spin on the wearable device by designing them for indoors. While they come with polarized sunglass lenses, their clear lenses are more useful with their blue light filter, which protects your eyes from screen glare to prevent discomfort even after hours of playing video games or working from home. The smart glasses, which also have a built-in omnidirectional microphone and speakers, may also be more comfortable to wear for an extended period of time compared to headsets and headphones. You'll enjoy smooth, stutter-free sound with the Razer Anzu's low latency audio with a 60ms Bluetooth connection.
